Ta Done.... Stack n Whack Quilt

I belong to a group of women that meet every Wednesday morning at the Senior Center...  some bring hand work such as embroidery, or binding.  A lot bring knitting and some bring nothing to work on.  Regardless of skills or anything else, these  ladies are the nicely most generous ladies you every want to meet!

The Senior Center doesn't charge us anything for the use of the room.  Instead we make them a raffle quilt once a year with the proceeds going to Meals on Wheels.  This year they were having a hard time deciding what to do for a quilt to donate,  Sooo, I got to thinking about the dozens or more shop and class samples I have that never been quilted.  I rummaged through them and came up with a Stack n Whack that I thought they would like.

I just finished quilting this earlier this week.  I've taken it to my good friend that would take it to the group for binding.  So anyway, I thought I'd share it with all of you.

The batting is Hobbs 80/20 black.  For the ruler work and block quilting I used InvisiFil by WonderFil in black.  For the freehand designs done in the secondary pattern that forms where the blocks meet I used Rainbow by Superior. (I will have to look up what color).  I also use 2 machines....


Yes...   I have two A1 machines on one table.  One is my older Elite, and the other is my newer Platinum with Quilt Gallery.  I used my Elite with the InvisiFil...   and the Platinum with the Rainbow.  (I did not use the Gallery.  This is all done freehand.  I thought the machine was going to be heavier with the Gallery on it, but once the belts were disengaged it moved like butter.  It move just like my Elite with no problems at all!

So for the freehand quilting I used designs from Just Leaf It....   first time I've done leaves in a long, long time.  I almost forgot how much fun they are....

 It was overcast the day I was taking pictures, so it was hard getting good once that showed the details...


 I haven't heard from the group...  so I hope they like it!
